Why does drug tolerance occur?
After so long a persons body will just adjust to the chemical. It is like drinking coffee. The first time we drink a cup we feel wired and after a few years 1 cup is just not enough

It means someone requires a higher doseage of a drug to acheive the same effects.
Drug tolerance can increase the likelihood of drug overdose for several reasons:. 1) A person addicted to a drug to which they've built tolerance may overestimate the amount …of the drug they need to ingest to get high. For instance, a heroin addict might find they need more and more heroin to stay "well" as the months go by. They might assume that they can put off the effects of withdrawal by doing double the amount of heroin they did yesterday. This can lead to an overdose.. 2) The other reason tolerance can contribute to overdose is if someone who has had a period of sobriety thinks they can use the same amount of a drug that they used before their sobriety. This is a very common cause of death amongst heroin users.. Alcohol is one of the only drugs in which tolerance can lead to death, without the overdose. When a person becomes physically addicted to alcohol (usually will experience delirium tremens when they have had short periods of time without alcohol), they can die when they try to quit drinking. Often the alcoholic will have seizures and needs prompt medical attention to prevent death.
Tolerance is like an immunity that your body makes. If you use a drug, your body will often build tolerance and dull or even nullify the effects.
Tolerance and dependence of a drug is a trademark of addiction. Thetolerance of a drug builds in which case a person needs more of thedrug in their system. The dependence on a… drug, is the need for thedrug in which to feel like you are living a normal life.
Yes, tolerance does occur with LSD. After repeated usage within a short span of time, increased amounts of LSD will be needed to achieve the same effects that lower doses prev…iously produced.
Tolerance describes the phenomena that occurs when the body "gets used" to a medication being present in the body and therefore the body registers that chemical to be normal t…o exist in the body. When this happens the effects, intended and unintended, of the medication decrease.
The answer is increase in Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER). This is because as the cell responds to different drugs it receives, the amount of smooth ER and its detoxyfiyi…ng enzymes increase, thereby increasing the rate of detoxification, and thus the body's tolerance to that particular drug. This means that higher and higher doses of that drug are needed to achieve an effect.
It does it by the mak ing the body like drugs. when u slep it ghets better and it likes the druios more
They are considered to be physically addictive (as opposed to chemically addictive or psychologically addictive). Note that drugs that are physically addictive (alcohol an…d opiates) are also extremely chemically and psychologically addictive as well. But physical addiction trumps those two. Physical addiction means you get violently ill, and can even die, if you suddenly stop taking the drug. That is not true of chemical and psychological addiction.
Hrm.... the first one that comes to mind is DMT. You've got about a minute to get your fill of it before your tolerance is built up. This tolerance diminishes fairly quickly …too though.
Increased dependency and tolerance basically means you'll need more of the given drug to the the same amount of high, and if you ingest the same amount you have been you won't… feel as high, because your body is getting used to/immune to it.Dependence is when you have become addicted to the drug and then have a real physical or psychological need for the drug to function. That is why when you quit you go through withdrawal and it is best not to quit cold turkey if you want to succeed.
Alcohol consumption interferes with many bodily functions and affects behavior. However, after chronic alcohol consumption, the drinker often develops tolerance to at least so…me of alcohol's effects. Tolerance means that after continued drinking, consumption of a constant amount of alcohol produces a lesser effect or increasing amounts of alcohol are necessary to produce the same effect.
Physical dependence occurs when a person develops a tolerance to the effects of a drug and needs larger and larger doses to achieve intoxication or another desired effect.
it can reduce the effect of the medication
Tolerance requires higher and higher doses to achieve the original effects.
it means you don't react easily to the drug. you need more than average amount to feel something.
